3rd unless I'm sniping or looting.

Third person.

First person only for sneak attacks

Usually third-person, but I switch to first-person when I'm in a pretty heated battle, looking for something, or in a dungeon or somewhere I need to be cautious.

I play in third person, i like feeling like i'm actually playing my character and not a floating pair of eye balls and two hands

3rd person entirely because I cannot stand playing games in 1st person. It feels unnatural, dizzying and gross.

I partially blame the older era of FPS type games (think 10+ years ago), where the movement was so odd-feeling that I got headaches playing a couple of those games. However, I also refuse to watch movies in 3D as it feels unnatural, looks awful usually, and gives me headaches as well.

Third when I`m walking around or I want to see how armor or clothes look and fighting out in open spaces if i`m in a dungeon or something I use first I also switch to first for archery

Third person.
Only going first person when looting in a small place, like when looking for stuff on tables in a house.

I've grown up with games that show me the character I'm playing as, so it's what I prefer. I don't like first person so much, it seems kinda weird...
